Yay! My perfumes arrived yesterday from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab!
I ordered 20 of their sample sized “Imps”, in a wide variety of scents. My favorite so far is “O”, but I’m also really digging “Siren” and “Blood Amber”. I’ll try them all, one a day–it’s the belated birthday gift that keeps on giving!
I was looking through Personal Demons yesterday and realized the place in that book where I almost gave up, and sat on my hands for almost three weeks because I had no idea how to get where I needed to be, was page 160. Guess where I’m stuck on The Demon Inside? Page 160, you say? Why, yes!
The good news is, I think I have figured out how to get over the hump. I actually got some words in this morning and think I’ll do more tonight (after Heroes, of course.)
Also in time-wasting, I decided, for some insane reason, that it would be fun to make spanakopita from scratch. Okay, actually it was kind of fun, but next time I’m using fresh spinach instead of frozen, because that shit was a bitch to thaw and took forever. Plus, phyllo pastry? Fiddly, although not as bad as I’ve heard. They say to keep it damp, but I actually found it easier to work with a little drier. Less fragile but still quite pliable.
Anyway. That’s it. I smell good–or at least I did until I started messing about with spinach and feta cheese–and I’ll either eat well tonight or I’ll eat terribly. (I’m also doing roast potatoes with garlic, lemon, oregano and nutmeg).
Oh, and I’ve become obsessed with Dog the Bounty Hunter.
